Southport Holiday Park
The 11th edition of Bang Face, the ultimate UK rave weekender, returns to Southport Holiday Park on 12-16 March with too many massive headliners to fit into a single attention-grabbing sentence!
Warp star Squarepusher will premier a brand new show alongside 30 year anniversary special performances from D&B veterans Fabio & Grooverider and Bang Face regulars Altern-8. Plus a rare UK outing from breakcore linchpin Venetian Snares, Plaid‘s stunning Polymer Live AV show, the launch of a new live PA from jungle’s founding father Lennie De Ice, a first time appearance from aberrant Estonian rapper Tommy Cash and a return to the Bang Face ballroom for the mighty Helena Hauff are just some of the reasons to sign up to Bang Face Weekender 2020 – Hard Crew and newcomers welcome!
Plus even more inflatables, punny banners, a 24 hour TV station streaming live nonsense to get you out of your chalets and back on the dancefloor, a pool party and opening ceremony involving some kind of health and safety hazard, BUCKFAST!, and the chance to win tickets to do it all over again in 2021 if you’re prepared to dress up in accordance to this year’s theme, and put some serious effort in.
WATCH the trailer (and feel free to share). Photos and more info attached regarding the first 35 names announced for this year’s event.
+ MORE NAMES TO DROP BEFORE XMAS!

What the press say:
Hugh Taylor, Bang Face veteran, for the Guardian: “Even with a chalet, Southport in March offers almost constant rain and occasional hailstorms, and a lake forms on one of the lawns. But this is all part of what James refers to as the “ordeal of Bang Face”. From the outside, it can all look quite scary, but once you surrender yourself, it is incredible.”
Martha Pazienti Caidan, Bang Face first-timer, for Resident Advisor: “Bang Face reminded me that electronic music doesn’t need to be over complicated. I’d much rather be surrounded by a community of people who really connect with the event they’re attending, like these guys did. They really ride for Bang Face, and it’s infectious.”
